Limassol Marina – Interessante Yacht-Destination als Tor vor allem zur griechischen Inselwelt

Wir gestalten gerade für einen Mandanten die Übernahme einer großen Yacht in Zypern/Limassol, die über eine rechtlich und steuerlich sehr interessante Gestaltung gehalten und auch unter Zypern-Flagge registriert wird.

Bei dieser Gelegenheit habe ich die neue Marina von Limassol näher kennengelernt und bin von der Gestaltung und dem Angebot ausgesprochen beeindruckt.

Künftig werden wir in Kooperation besondere Angebote für unsere Mandanten zur Verfügung stellen, die dann von uns – je nach Wunsch und Bedarf – in Zusammenarbeit mit unserem Joint Venture Office in Limassol alle rechtlichen, steuerlichen und wirtschaftlichen Gestaltungen rund um Ihre Yacht ebenso erhalten, wie Services rund um die Yacht selbst.

Hier ein paar Informationen und Eckdaten dazu:

Located on the south coast of Cyprus, Limassol Marina lies at the crossroads of three continents. The island offers numerous picturesque bays and coastal resorts, most within a few hours’ sail from the Marina. And further afield, there are the cruising destinations of Greece and the Greek Islands, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt and Turkey as well as the Suez Gateway to the Red Sea.
 
An island of contrasts

With around 320 days of clear blue skies a year, the island’s mild and reliable climate offers uninterrupted opportunities for open-air and open-water activities in the sunshine. The warm, clear waters and lack of strong tides and currents around Cyprus make it an ideal place to dive – the most famous Cypriot dive site being the Zenobia wreck off the coast of Larnaca, considered by many to be the finest dive site in the Mediterranean. 

Cyprus abounds with reminders of the island’s history. Relics from every era – Greek temples, Roman mosaics and 15thcentury frescoes – give repeated hints of its rich culture and above all, adaptability. This is a place where modern resort life and amenities such as beach clubs, seaside tavernas, international restaurants and water-borne fun seem as natural to the island as its more traditional pursuits. With a joyous and spontaneous nightlife that attracts visitors from all over the world, it’s no surprise that Limassol is known as ‘the town that never sleeps’. Charming cafés, buzzing restaurants and welcoming tavernas; trendy bars and glamorous clubs, featuring world-renowned DJs, with an array of wine and lounge bars available for a more relaxing experience. Each night brings something new and different in a city that’s always alive.

Limassol has a full calendar of events, including festivals, exhibitions, arts performances and concerts. Please check with the Reception of Limasol Marina for what is going on during your stay to make it as enjoyable and interesting as possible.

Cyprus has been an EU member since 2004 and the Euro is its local currency. A low cost of living is complemented by one of the most beneficial tax regimes in Europe and a British-based legal system. Cyprus is one of the safest countries in the EU and the majority of Cypriots are fluent in English. The island’s climate, stress-free lifestyle and minimal pollution make it one of the healthiest and most relaxing countries to live.
